Hey all.

so in no particular order what are your to 5 favorite food items right now?

For me it would be:

1. Goat Cheese
2. Fresh Pasta
3. Sweetbreads
4. Beets
5. Boudin Noir -- as much as I knew this wouldn't taste like blood I still had the notion in the back of my mind it would taste all tinny and metallic when I first had it. I was pleasantly surprised.

Lol - you've been dying to say that haven't you? :)

Ok...let's give it a go...

Sweet chilli, onion, olive jam

Slice your pork loin really thin, pound it even flatter, make a caramel, crisp up the pork loin in the caramel. Dry the slices to super crispy under a grill.


Make cheddar paprika scones (biscuits). Use the jam as a dipping sauce for the sweet pork crisp, serve the scones on the side with sweetened butter.

Best I could do :) Don't even imagine it would work or be classified as a sweet hehe.

That almost works - except Tia Chieu is nothing resembling sweet. It's hellfire and brimstone in soybean oil. :eek:

Very creative though. :beer:

aha - didn't know how fierce it was. Ok just a slightest drop of the Tia Chui - stacks of brown sugar, vinegar, cook your jam till really really soft.

Oh well, it was worth a go!

Easy question...

1. Missouri country ham
2. Kentucky country ham
3. Maryland country ham
4. Virginia country ham

...sense an obsession here?

5. very dry vodka martinis

Mike :smoking:

semi-seriously, though -

Just discovered white anchovies, a Spanish oil-and-vinegar-cured anchovy preparation called boquerones and introduced to me by the Serious Eats forum...

Fire-Roasted Peppers with Boquerones | Serious Eats : Recipes

They're very hard to find, but well worth the search. If you happen to live in Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company in the Strip District has them in bulk.

On the web, beware of suppliers who offer them at about $5 per ounce. They should go for around $1 per ounce, which is about what regular oil-cured anchovies cost.

They are a local chocolatier so I can get them in Central Pa. But you may be able to get it online.
